You should see Starostin's reconstruction of Proto-Northwest Caucasian! Make sure you use the Times Star or Courier Star fonts! If you use IE, go to Internet Options, then Fonts, then set User Defined to Times New Roman Star (for proportional) and Courier New Star (for monospaced). Set encoding to User Defined to view pages. By the way, these fonts are great for phonemics! DaW. __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Get Yahoo! Mail – Free email you can access from anywhere!
